Internet Win of the Day: Nov. 12

Just something I thought was awesome for reals …

"Why Fifty Shades of Grey is Popular" blog post

With this insightful blog post, which you can read by clicking here or on the image, Nathan Bransford (@NathanBransford) has told me everything I needed to know about this book that has become nothing short of a phenomenon while saving me the trouble of actually reading it.

Given that I’m up to my eyeballs in Twain as part of the 33 Project, this is much appreciated. (I could tell you the real reason I haven’t read it is because I wouldn’t waste my time on such smut, but I don’t think I’d be fooling any of us.)

You’ll enjoy this post if you’ve heard of this book (and who hasn’t?) but don’t know much about it, if you’ve read it and are still trying to figure out what the hell just happened, or if you’re just interested in the book industry in general.

And Mr. Bransford is the perfect person to write it. A former literary agent, he is the author of the “Jacob Wonderbar” novels while also serving as the social media manager at CNET. I’ve been following his blog at since his agenting days, and there’s always something interesting to read there.

It was through said following that I saw this post, so Nathan gets the full point for today’s Internet win.

Now everyone go take a cold shower.
